What an amazing day this was! Francesca + Chris’ wedding was my first for the season, and let me just say, this will be hard to top. The day started off with Francesca and the girls getting ready at the Loew’s.(I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE Badgley Mischka shoes). Francesca’s bouquet was this amazing piece her mother and her florist, Chris Hilke of All Staging Matters, created together. It is comprised of about a million unique brooch’s Francesca’s mother collected over the past year! So gorgeous! All the girls bouquet’s were dried lavendar and each had their own unique brooch detail; the Loew’s smelled AMAZING all day. Francesca looked simply breathtaking in her wedding gown, and with all the natural light available, I couldn’t stop myself haha.
Chris, of course, you were equally as stunning with your custom made purple gingham suit! ;) Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man! The “first look” is one of my favorite moments of any wedding day and Chris and Francesca’s was too cute. I must actively stop myself from crying during first looks :’) I am convinced, I just could NOT take a bad photo of these two!
The ceremony was simple and sweet and filled with the love of friends and family. All perfectly timed to a gorgeous sunset. And although it was February, we were determined to get them on the roof to do some photos with the PSFS sign. Perfect light! And although, Francesca was hoping for some romantic magical snowiness, (we DID in fact see snow that day), I think it was cold enough for them both just the same. (I swear I did my snow dance for you Francesca, and I’m SO glad we at least had 5 minutes of visible snow!)
The rest of the evening was filled with great friends, family, food, drinks, laughter and LOTS of great dance moves. Thanks to the Janis Nowlan Band and Chris, thank you for officially, teaching me how to dougie ;) And finally, thank you to everyone who was apart of this amazing wedding day. Francesca & Chris, I love you to pieces, have a long, happy and healthy life together!
ashleyAwesome work! Love every one!
